regime and outside travelers to avoid it at all costs. fighting near the airport forced the suspension of commercial flights this week. some airlines have already stopped altogether. a rebel takeover of the airport would also cut off weapons supplies to allies like iran. >> it has the country's longest runways. it's from that location that jets from iran land. they're carrying a lot of sophisticated weapons, so knocking that location out, taking it over and holding it, would allow the rebels to begin their push toward damascus, without the threat of resupply. >> reporter: that makes it far too valuable to forces loyal to
